The following candidates are running for the WRO board of directors.
I have been a resident of El Bosque since 1986. Alongside being a business owner, I serve on the governing board of the Santa Clara Unified School District TA1. I have previously run as a candidate for the California State Assembly AD25 and State Senate SD10. Currently, I am proud to serve as a founding WRO board member.
I am eager to continue serving for another term.
Thank you sincerely,
My name is Doug Lohafer and I am running in the election for a seat on the board of directors for Los Encinos. I have lived in Los Encinos since 1985.
A number of years ago the park had a residents association and I was a member of that association and also the president of the board of directors.
I am also a negotiator for a group on a real estate deal in San Jose and work closely with a real estate attorney. We are negotiating a real estate deal with Mid-Peninsula Housing. We have also had meetings with San Jose City Council members as part of our negotiations.
In the past I have talked with Bruce Stanton, who is a mobile-home law attorney, about issues in our park and I am also very familiar with the state mobile-home laws.
I have also been a member of CMRAA, a statewide mobile-home association which was similar to the statewide GSMOL association. CMRAA was primarily in Northern California.
I will state that I am good at public speaking and also meeting people and public officials on issues. I also work very well with attorneys.
I’m Jennie Wilstead Fay, and I would like the opportunity to represent you for another year. I took this volunteer position because I truly care about where we live and what happens to this park. I am one of the founding WRO Board Members and have served in the position for the last year and a half. On March 20, 2020, I was in attendance at the
San Jose City Council meeting at City Hall with the Mayor and council members. We were at city hall encouraging residents to speak and shepherding them through the speaker signup process. After one to two hours of public testimony (with speakers limited to one minute each), no one on the council wanted to be seen opposing this proposal. The city council voted unanimously to protect all 58 mobile home parks in San Jose! The vote was unanimous! Our new land use designation is "Mobile Home Park Only." This means that anyone who wants to redevelop this property to anything besides a mobile home park will need the city council to vote to amend the general plan.
I have resided in Spindrift for over 14 years; my husband with 35 years under his belt. As a homeowner and a resident of Spindrift, I take my role seriously and am genuinely concerned about what could happen to the inhabitants should the Westwind property be sold out from under us. I am dedicated and will continue to work diligently on our behalf towards a most favorable outcome for Westwind residents!
